Hard to tell about trademarks and such when writing about a place like Intoint, but here goes: for retro videogame fun, you owe it to yourself to get a group together and play IntoMan. In fact, this is one time where I would think voice chat might make all the difference in enjoying this Second Life version of Pac-Man! Yeppers, you put on this little backpack which provides you a readout of the rose-shaped pellets you collect while maneuvering through a maze, avoiding the blue meanies. (These meanies are more a powder blue and have ears to distinguish themselves from their originals.)
I did this once with an acquaintance and we both got to laughing so hard, we failed miserably at beating the game. Hey! What’s wrong with laughing? I have played solo on several occasions and have gotten to the second level . . . you really have to have smooth movements although the game is fairly forgiving . . . you run past a “pellet” it will usually dissolve despite technically running past it rather than over it.
The real fun is playing in the modes Pac-Man never really offered: team and battle mode! In team, your partner and you combine to beat the levels, and your names are registered in the High Score board with combined score. In Battle mode, you and partner score separately, competing to see who can get the most pellets while surviving. That’s where having voice would add to the fun: trash talking and hearing each others’ gales of laughter!
